5d3 Video Example - The Blues Band
« on: June 09, 2013, 07:34:47 PM »
Greetings!

This is of my uncle's excellent blues band on Long Island NY.

The first clip of the female singer is the Rokinon 85mm 1.4 and the second clip/song is the Canon 50mm 1.8 (which has considerably less noise) and these are my only two lenses I need to think about a 24-70, 70-200 or other primes. I believe I used AWB for both.

It is apparent I need to buy a monopod since my handheld was shaky and no IS for either video.

I'm looking for general impressions/feedback. If you have advice on how to improve the quality/sharpness of the video with less noise as well (lens suggestions/settings). Also, any advice on contrast/coloring and what program you use. I used FCPx to do this. I know that AE has a sharpening tool that may have helped and I'm sure it may have a denoiser for that second clip but still new.

Thanks!

For the type of panning you are doing, you might prefer a proper tripod with a good video head. Or, a bit more expensive option might be a glidecam system with body harness. This would give you more flexibility of moving around in the club and changing view points even during a shot.

I noticed you had a lot of focus pulling in your long continuous shots. Good. What did you use as focusing aid? Did you have an external monitor?

Excellent music!

Well, something in between a flycam and a tripod (as far as mobility, price and ease of use are concerned) could be this:

Otherwise, you could buy a camera rig. Since you don't need a matte box this would be a quite cheap and very good solution.

A lens with a good IS would also be very useful...

As far as sharpness and noise are concerned, they look not bad to me, considering you were shooting in low light conditions inside a pub. My general advice is that is always much better to use a higher ISO setting to reach the right exposure, than to underexpose to use a lower ISO setting.
